the original title for this blog was stuff (because it’s basically a ramble about whatever comes to mind), but considering the amount of hot cross buns and easter eggs I’ve consumed over the weekend, stuffed is probably more apt. 🙂 I don’t know what it is about easter buns, but not even raisin bread can compare with the taste. I love them, especially when smothered in melted butter–the thicker the better!
The diet, as you may have gathered, has gone out the window…and I still have a ton of easter chocolate to consume. I’d actually love to throw it out, but the chocoholic in me just can’t waste good chocolate like that. (yep, I’m weak). I guess it means the dogs are going to be taken for a longer walk for the next few days!
Writing wise, well, there hasn’t been a whole lot of that happening. I did another read through of the 150 pages of Destiny Kills written so far, and I’m still liking what’s there, so that’s a good start. I’m still not entirely sure whether this is going to be a two part story or a three part, because despite the fact that I’m 150 pages in, I don’t know where the end of this will be. I know what Destiny has to achieve, but can she achieve it in this book? At this particular moment in time, that’s the million dollar question. I actually don’t want to write more than two books–I don’t really want this to be a series, though I wouldn’t mind eventually writing more books in this world. But I’ve also got another book idea brewing in the back of my mind–something that’s little more than a first sentence at the moment–and will undoubtedly want to write that once it’s fermented. And really, one continuing series is more than enough. For me, anyway. I like visiting other places and other characters, and I think getting stuck writing in one or two worlds only would be detrimental to those worlds.
Anyway, we have a lulu meeting on today, and I’m taking the first chapter of the 5th Riley. The start of this one is a whole lot slower than the previous four, and I just want to be sure it still hooks the reader enough. Slow starting books always worry me–which is why my first chapters tend to be action laden. It’ll be interesting to see what the gals think of it–hopefully, I won’t have to prod them awake as they snore their way through the chapter…. 😀
